Regardless of what age we are, or how worldly and mature we may be, there is still an inner child in every one of us – seen or not. And, that inner child needs to be treated compassionately and sensitively when their parent dies. The inner child is that aspect of us who still sees their parents through the eyes of the child within.
Those of us who attend funerals are witnesses of the life that’s been lived.
Deprived of the right to grieve: Disenfranchised grief can be a difficult and lonely experience, and those grieving may not recieve the help they require.
